Thank you Mrs Dickson!

Mrs Dickson has found a few websites for art based tasks, these websites will help you develop your artistic skills. I know we have a few budding artists in the class so I thought I would attach the links to the websites below so you can have a look…

KS2 art and design ideas from BBC Bitesize – teaches lots of different disciplines and uses lots of different materials. Definitely worth a look!
